I have not written an update on books in a few days...I finished The Spiritualist, and it was VERY good. I kind of had the whodunit figured out, but not the way it played out and certainly not the why of it all. Then I picked up a book called The Thief Taker by Janet Gleeson that I just finished yesterday and it was REALLY good. It was set in the late 1700s London and involved a cook geting embroiled in a mystery of 3 murders and a theft. It was one of the better ones of that type that I have read recently, so I started another one of hers called The Serpent in the Garden. I have only read a few pages, but I am going to get in bed and read for a while in just a bit. I have her other one too, and I expect that I will start it once I am done with this one assuming that it turns out to be as enjoyable as the first one.
I guess I'm just in the mood for something darker around Halloween...I'm still looking forward to going back to the middle ages for my Sharon Kay Penman trilogy!
